I recently signed up for the Guild of Sommeliers. I received an e-mail from them after signing up for a course through The Master Court of Sommeliers. I had already looked into their organization, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to sign up. The Guild of Sommeliers strives to provide wine education, enrichment and healthy debate among members while maintaining the chief values of the profession: integrity, humility, and hospitality toward all.
Described as America’s premiere association of working sommeliers and wine professionals, it offers many opportunities to further educate myself in the wine, beer and spirits industry. Some of these include educational tools, a compendium, featured articles, podcasts and interviews, discussion forums, maps and job postings.
I look forward to taking some time to peruse their website and using this information to help guide my continuing education in the field!
